THE PINK RUN 5k
Sunshine Insurance, in its role as the lead sponsor and organizer for Marathon Bahamas, is committed to foster strategic relationships with organizations for the advancement of breast cancer awareness, research and treatment. Relationships that could significantly impact the health of Bahamians, especially in the areas of breast cancer and other women’s health issues.
In January 2011, the first 5k was held and today, the 5k remains an important event on many people’s calendars – locally and internationally.
THE PINK RUN 5k Bahamas is an event not only to raise money for the beneficiaries but also to bring attention to the dreaded disease, of breast cancer, that affect so many of our Bahamian women. 100 percent of the money raised by THE PINK RUN 5k, Bahamas will remain in The Bahamas to fund breast cancer and women’s health programs.
THE PINK RUN 5k is suited for runners and walkers, is family oriented and raises significant funds and awareness for the breast cancer movement, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease.
Beneficiaries for the event are: The Cancer Society of The Bahamas, The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, Sister Sister Breast Cancer Support Group and the Cancer Society of The Bahamas Grand Bahama Chapter.
